1.God calling yet! shall I not hear?
Earth's pleasures shall I still hold dear?
Shall life's swift passing years all fly,
And still my soul in slumber lie?
2.God calling yet! shall I not rise?
Can I his loving voice despise,
And basely his kind care repay?
He calls me still; can I delay?
3.God call-ing yet! and shall he knock,
And I my heart the closer lock?
He still is waiting to receive,
And shall I dare his Spirit grieve?
4.God calling yet! I cannot stay;
My heart I yield without despise,
Vain world, farewell! from thee I part;
The voice of God hath reached my heart.
Amen.
